Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says he plans to unveil a proposed alternative to the Affordable Care Act next month.
"Well, we'll lay it out in the next three weeks," the former Florida governor told Fox Business Network host Maria Bartiromo, according to Politico.
Bush said his plan will "move back to a consumer-driven system, where you have low-premium, catastrophic coverage where it's portable, where people can have more than one choice and where they are more empowered to make decisions themselves."
He added that it would be emboldened with conservative values, repealing signature health care law of President Barack Obama now in effect.
"We have to lower the cost of health care to lower the cost of health care insurance. And the Obamacare approach is actually creating higher costs for the whole system, and it's suppressing wages," Bush said.
"We want to create more income for more people, then we have to have a dramatic change, and I believe repealing Obamacare, beyond that, we need to come up with an alternative that embraces conservative values ..."
